It seems renal px cannot take either Zantac and Mylaxx (spelling). I asked the nephro about pepto-bismol, he said that was fine. It looks like Tums and Rolaids are not a good idea either from what I have been reading...
Any suggestions on OTC heartburn remedies?
Many of us take Tums anyway, as phosphorus binders with the food we eat.
But I need something stronger, because I have a very weak lower esophageal sphincter--stuff comes up out of my stomach easily.
So I take OTC Omeprazole. (The brand name version is Prilosec OTC, but most drugstore chains have their own version.)
